Luckily, my daughter thrives on having lots to do! Which is good, considering that she has things to do every day after school! Currently, she has dance class on Mondays, Mad Science class on Tuesdays, Daisy Girl Scouts and gymnastics on Wednesdays, social skills class on Thursdays, and singing lessons on Friday.
For whatever reason, my daughter didn't have a lot of her activities this week. We actually had free time after school! On Tuesday, we ran into some friends of hers outside the school. They all ran around and played, then decided to settle down and do homework together! On Wednesday, another friend of my daughter's insisted that she wanted to walk out of school with my daughter. The two girls ended up playing for awhile, and we made tentative plans for a future play date.
The lighter schedule has been nice and has, ironically, allowed for more social interactions. I'm beginning to wonder if we should have a day with no planned activities to use as play date time. I'm not ready to actually give up any of my daughter's activities yet, but it does have me wondering!
